Somehow the check and balance representative design of government must accord with something like Mark, Mother, Merlin, Morya leading the way of Camelot.

In the I Ching the 8 trigrams can be placed in an 8-fold arrangement.  Ancient sages did that.

See chapter 2 at http://shapeless.org/chou_i/shou_kua.html.

In the early 1970s at Summit University at Santa Barbara Confucius dictated “Remember mountain, river, bird, tree.”

Trigram wood could be “tree,” oneness.  Trigram water could be “river,” the flow of life. Trigram mountain is likely “mountain,” consciousness.  Trigram lake could possibly equate to “bird,” which might symbolize balance.

97.  Surveillance must be very vigilant, but it must not appear as a sign of mistrust.  One must transform control into cooperation and reciprocal information.  Measures of trust and refinement of quality must be introduced from top to bottom.  Many useful measures have been condemned and destroyed only because of hatred of supervision.  Of course ignorance is the cause of such lack of goal-fitness.     -Morya:  Fiery World 1934

178.  The weak-minded also need surveillance.  Madness is contagious.  Weak-mindedness in childhood indicates subsequent abnormality through the entire life. People are agreed that the conditions of life are unhealthy; yet in spite of this, every advice about improving conditions for health will meet with hostility.  -Morya:  Brotherhood 1937

HONG KONG, Aug. 6 — Pro-Beijing lawmakers approved legislation here today giving broad authority to the police to conduct covert surveillance, including wiretapping phones, bugging homes and offices and monitoring e-mail.
The bill passed the 60-member Legislative Council on a vote of 32 to 0 soon after pro-democracy lawmakers walked out of the chamber in protest early this morning.

 2-22-06         Never before have the Chinese robbed the West of so much and such sensitive merchandise. Fully 70 percent of all illegal copycat products come from Asia, and most of that comes from China, in what has mushroomed into a $300 billion market. And the issue is no longer just a pair of poorly copied Adidas running shoes or a plastic version of a Gucci watch. More recently, the Chinese and others have taken to pirating expensive, high-tech knowledge, allowing them to duplicate entire machines and systems.  http://service.spiegel.de/cache/international/spiegel/0,1518,402464,00.html

2004:   In short, ‘s great uncertainties surround China’s political and strategic future, and China is one of the few countries whose future matters greatly to the United States. Consequently, the security implications of U.S. economic policies toward China should trouble all Americans. Although China’s future posture is highly uncertain, it is only a slight exaggeration to say that U.S. policy towards China has been to transfer money and militarily useful technology to the People’s Republic as fast as possible. The enormous and rapidly growing trade surpluses China has run in recent years with the United States have sent more than $600 billion in hard currency earnings to China since 1996 alone. That figure is equivalent to 6 percent of total current annual U.S. economic output. This mountain of money can only greatly expand the resources available to the Chinese military. As long as this vast U.S. subsidy to the entire Chinese economy continues, moreover, China will be able to avoid many hard choices between guns and butter.
U.S. technology transfers to China potentially are more worrisome, as they could well enable China to take charge of its own technological development. Not only could China’s military development proceed free of all external constraints. China’s capacity to export weapons of mass destruction and their associated technologies would be liberated as well. http://energycommerce.house.gov/108/Hearings/03312004hearing1239/Tonelson1917.htm

 Compiled by Chinese venture capital (VC) research and consulting firm Zero2IPO, the fourth annual survey found 60 firms made 253 investments totalling $1.269 billion (US) in China mainland or mainland-related enterprises in 2004.
The rapid growth in the world’s fascination with all things Chinese also is evident by the number of deals increasing more than 43 percent over last year. The survey results mark the first time the total has surpassed $1 billion, with total funds increasing by 28 percent over the prior year.
According to Zero2IPO, the Information and Computer (IC) industry received the bulk of the investments, reporting $424 million with a primary focus on IC design. Telecommunication firms captured 12 percent of the total, while 14 percent was invested in firms in the “traditional” industry sector. The Shanghai region received the greatest number of deals and highest investment amount, followed by Beijing.

6-28-13  Intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden is likely to reveal much more information about the global surveillance programs of the US National Security Agency, WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange says.

”I believe we will see a lot more detail, a lot more information,” Mr Assange said on Friday.

He said Mr Snowden’s disclosures of US signals intelligence and internet surveillance programs published by The Guardian and The Washington Post offered a ”bird’s-eye perspective” but the fine detail was essential for the leaks to achieve lasting political impact.

”We’ve seen matters at a high level. Now we need to go down to the level of countries, organisations and individuals, so they can see that they have been specifically targeted or caught up in the NSA’s dragnet surveillance.”

NSA surveillance may be legal — but it’s unconstitutional

By Laura K. Donohue,June 21, 2013

Laura K. Donohue is a professor at Georgetown University Law Center and director of Georgetown’s Center on National Security and the Law.

The National Security Agency’s recently revealed surveillance programs undermine the purpose of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which was established to prevent this kind of overreach. They violate the Fourth Amendment’s guarantee against unreasonable search and seizure. And they underscore the dangers of growing executive power.

The intelligence community has a history of overreaching in the name of national security. In the mid-1970s, it came to light that, since the 1940s, the NSA had been collecting international telegraphic traffic from companies, in the process obtaining millions of Americans’ telegrams that were unrelated to foreign targets. From 1940 to 1973, the CIA and the FBI engaged in covert mail-opening programs that violated laws prohibiting the interception or opening of mail. The agencies also conducted warrantless “surreptitious entries,” breaking into targets’ offices and homes to photocopy or steal business records and personal documents. The Army Security Agency intercepted domestic radio communications. And the Army’s CONUS program placed more than 100,000 people under surveillance, including lawmakers and civil rights leaders.

After an extensive investigation of the agencies’ actions, Congress passed the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to limit sweeping collection of intelligence and create rigorous oversight. But 35 years later, the NSA is using this law and its subsequent amendments as legal grounds to run even more invasive programs than those that gave rise to the statute.

We’ve learned that in April, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) orderedVerizon to provide information on calls made by each subscriber over a three-month period. Over the past seven years, similar orders have been served continuously on AT&T, Sprint and other telecommunications providers.

Another program, PRISM, disclosed by the Guardian and The Washington Post, allows the NSA and the FBI to obtain online data including e-mails, photographs, documents and connection logs. The information that can be assembledabout any one person — much less organizations, social networks and entire communities — is staggering: What we do, think and believe.

The government defends the programs’ legality, saying they comply with FISA and its amendments….

This means that FISA can now be used to gather records concerning individuals who are neither the target of any investigation nor an agent of a foreign power. Entire databases — such as telephony metadata — can be obtained, as long as an authorized investigation exists.

It’s not just the government that can spy on you.  Surveillance hardware and software have never been better or more affordable.

What’s more, the legal regulations concerning digital privacy are incomplete, inconsistently interpreted, and lag behind the rapid pace of technological advancement.

In other words, there’s never been a better time to be the spy next door.

The distance between what’s possible and what’s permissible is vast and ever-changing. How far can you go?     http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2013/06/24/spy-next-door-private-surveillance-has-never-been-easier/#ixzz2XZbpIIae

It must be realized then that it is possible to wrest from the hand of God some of the secrets of governing the forces of nature and controlling matter even though the individual and motive be not absolutely pure.  But let none ever think that the one so doing shall escape from accountablility, for he is fully responsible for each use or abuse of energy within his world….All those who misuse the powers of the universe for selfish ends find sooner or later that they must relinquish their hold upon their ill-gotten gains; and the penalty they pay is frightful indeed.    -Saint Germain, see http://books.google.com/books?id=ys4_cgAlR6sC&pg=PA5&dq=accountability+clare+prophet+alchemy&hl=en&sa=X&ei=17zAUe3YJ8etigKc5oHAAQ&ved=0CC0Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=accountability%20clare%20prophet%20alchemy&f=false

Wall Street is cooking up another crisis—making shoddy loans and selling worthless securities to investors hungry for higher yields than CDs and government bonds offer.

Dodd-Frank banking reforms imposed very costly regulations on mortgage and commercial lending. Regional banks, which have solid knowledge of smaller businesses, could not bear these costs and sold out to large Wall Street institutions. Now a handful of money center banks control more than half the deposits and lendable money.

Although big banks have branches everywhere and are flush with funds, they don’t know much about which businesses are likely to repay what they borrow.

Banks aren’t carrying many mortgages on their books—they are merely conduits for Fannie Mae—but business loans have recovered to pre-financial crisis levels. And the bank examiners at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the FDIC, and Federal Reserve are alarmed about their lending standards.

Too often loans are made to businesses with inadequate cash flow—paper profits are important to stock investors but banks focus on cash flow to evaluate whether an enterprise can pay up each month. Also, many loans carry weak covenants and collateral.

Banks are lending at today’s low interest rates with alarmingly long maturities. That is troublesome because banks’ cost of funds go up and down as the Federal Reserve tightens and loosens monetary policy.

There is no more opportunity for me to give my diamonds of goodwill to those lacking in goodwill. Therefore, let chelas throughout the world who have basked in the light of our releases know that there is a price to pay.  It is time to put LOVE into your decrees and not to sit and decree by rote.  We are grateful for the words.  We are grateful for the energy, but after all, while you are putting in the words and the energy, can you not sprinkle in a little love, a little visualization, a little thought of the ascended masters who have sacrificed for you?

Be not overconfident of our position.  On the rolling logs going down the rivers of the world moving, you have to remain surefooted to remain on those logs.  You are yet in time and space.  You have not yet confirmed your individuality in the flame.
   Do not take for granted the fires of the hearth of the Mother.  They will not always be there.  As time and space move you will find yourself sometime, somewhere totally on your own.
  And if the fire of your heart is not sufficient you will freeze in the cold of the world’s neglect of the teaching.  Some day you will have to rely upon your heart alone for sustenance, for flow, for tie to Hierarchy, for your own ascension.

You must learn to know when you are living off the light of another and when you are living on your own attainment.  This is not a game.  This is serious.  I have come from the Royal Teton to give you a report on the world situation.  My remarks thus far are prologue for I need to speak to the chelas.

I need to make clear that it doesn’t matter what you think you have given, your gift is not enough.  It does not matter how you assess your progress.  I say, your progress is lacking. 

We are entering a period of the step up of the energies of light and darkness, as you have been told before.  And so you say, “Yes, yes, Morya, we have heard it before.”  And so the great cosmic epoch of the coming of the World Mother becomes a drone in your consciousness because you have heard it before. 
 
Well I speak it again for it is the greatest moment in all cosmic history when the Divine Mother returns incarnate, in flesh, in the flame of living fire….
This is my word.   This is my warning.  And I have said it for the last time. 
 
I will not have the play of power around our Messenger.
 I will not have the interference with her work by the petty consciousness of those who intrude with every form of petty problem upon the time of the Messenger. 

You must rise.   We have descended as low as we can go and that low is the level of your Christ self.   Unless you rise to that level you will have the responsibility of having broken the tie to Hierarchy.  And then you will see what it is to swim in the depths of the astral sea without the lifeline, without the cord of oxygen to the mothership.    -Morya:  11-16-1975  via Messenger ECP

  This is the law of integrity (i.e., the soul’s inner integration with the Spirit Most Holy) which is the foundation of existence.  Each one of us must be able to defeat any and every type of invading force that seeks to cross the line–the circle–of our integral selfhood, as Above so below in heaven and on earth.     -Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Pearl 31:71C
……………………………………………………..
Deviations from the Law have many consequences, far beyond what you realize.  Like the rings that form after you throw a stone into the water so the ripples of inharmony continue and the karma is great.    -Saint Germain:  7-4-1974 via Messenger ECP

71.  Solemnity is not rest, not satisfaction, not the end but precisely the beginning, precisely determination and progress on the way to light.  Hardships are inevitable, as the wheels of striving….The victory of spirit is in the assertion of unalterable principles.      
103.  Keeping a correct direction is already a victory.  Our help is ready to pour forth but it must be for someone and into something.  Who then can aid us with straight and simple striving?  The heart will help find this current and also the true path.    
121.  When the builders of a great plan are called there can be no relativity.  When the hour is dangerous the heart aches.  One may think of many causes but the basis of anguish and alarm is one, namely, the austere part of the battle.  It would be impossible to imagine a battle as an advance without obstacles.  Thus we are on guard and we call the co-workers to stand solidly. 
209.  Do not be frightened when the great days come.  When you examine the armor you know that victory is accorded only by trust and by the heart.  Where the forces are assembled one can find true victories for oneself.  
353.  The heart thinks, the heart affirms, the heart unifies….So also will the victory upon the field of Armageddon remain with the heart.  Hence I counsel to preserve the heart as the smiting sword against all evil.      -Morya:  Heart 1932

Obama’s version of the surveillance; ret. Lt-Gen. Boykin; photos

Boykin on Marxism

“We hear a lot about Marxism and socialism, and there are those, particularly in the media, who would say that we should ‘tone down our rhetoric’ about socialism because ‘we’re not moving to socialism,’” Boykin states in the video. “Well, The reality is … I’ve studied Marxist insurgency. It was part of my training. And the things I know that have been done in every Marxist insurgency are being done in America today.”

Boykin laid out a step-by-step plan he says is the model of how Fidel Castro instituted Marxism in Cuba, Mao Zedong in China, Stalin in Russia and Hugo Chavez in Venzeula:

  1. Nationalize major sectors of the economy
  2. Redistribute wealth
  3. Discredit opposition
  4. Censors opposing viewpoints
  5. Control gun ownership
  6. Develop a constabulary force to control civilian population

Boykin then illustrates how each of these steps have begun to materialize in the U.S.: From a form of “nationalization” through government bailouts, to “hate crime” legislation aimed at silencing the pulpits, to the federal government labeling tea partiers and veterans returning from overseas as potential domestic terrorists, to efforts underway to get the U.S. on board with a United Nations small arms treaty, which would regulate private gun ownership.

Boykin takes particular aim at Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which he says federal administrators have already admitted is a wealth-redistribution plan (step No. 2) and he says includes within its 1,000 pages plans for national security forces at the president’s disposal, akin to national police forces socialist tyrants like Adolf Hitler used to complete their revolutions.

Specifically, Boykin alluded to a speech Obama made four years ago today, in Colorado Springs, Colo., on July 2, 2008, in which he pledged to establish a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded [as the U.S. military].”

In a note accompanying the first set of documents he provided, Edward Snowden wrote: “I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions,” but “I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant.”

Despite his determination to be publicly unveiled, he repeatedly insisted that he wants to avoid the media spotlight. “I don’t want public attention because I don’t want the story to be about me. I want it to be about what the US government is doing.”

He does not fear the consequences of going public, he said, only that doing so will distract attention from the issues raised by his disclosures. “I know the media likes to personalise political debates, and I know the government will demonise me.”

Despite these fears, he remained hopeful his outing will not divert attention from the substance of his disclosures. “I really want the focus to be on these documents and the debate which I hope this will trigger among citizens around the globe about what kind of world we want to live in.” He added: “My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them.”  http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/09/edward-snowden-nsa-whistleblower-surveillance

Dick Cheney, vice-president under George W Bush and a key figure in the post-September 11 revamping of US national security, also defended the system. He told Fox News Sunday that it was needed to “gather intelligence on your enemies and stop the attack before it is launched”. He went on to condemn the man behind the series of explosive leaks regarding. Having described Edward Snowden as a “traitor”, Cheney went on to cast aspersions over the 29-year-old’s decision to travel to Hong Kong, suggesting that he could be a spy for China.  http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/16/nsa-whistleblower-edward-snowden-traitor-cheney

When the Wisdom of God is imparted to man it makes him aware -Saint Germain

  When the Wisdom of God is imparted to man it makes him aware of the fact that the sum total of all that he is–whether he likes it or not–is the result of his own doings.  He sees on the instant the need as well as the power to change his ways and to draw himself into alignment with cosmic Law….

  The greatest or rockets ancient and modern have a platform or launching pad from which they thrust off into the heavens.  So it is with men and women in their search for cosmic Truth.  From the platform of present existence they must seek and find the threads of cosmic Light that will lead them through the golden door and beyond to etheric realms where blazes Illumination’s flame.    -Saint Germain;  “A Trilogy on the Threefold Flame of Life, Wisdom”, 1967
